    Grand Geneva Resort & Spa
    Lake Geneva, WI
    #2 in Best Resorts in Wisconsin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 2462 reviewsTripAdvisor (2462)
    Free Parking
    Although the Grand Geneva Resort & Spa is situated in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, not Lake Geneva, Switzerland, guests say the locale is quite beautiful. The resort's guest rooms feature private balconies overlooking southern Wisconsin's hilly landscape, not to mention high-tech amenities like multimedia desks and flat-screen TVs. Previous visitors appreciate the Grand Geneva's wealth of on-site activities, including a water park for the kiddos and skiing access for the whole family. If you don't have little ones in tow, fill your days with rounds of golf at The Brute and The Highlands courses, or massage your stress away at the WELL Spa + Salon. Recent guests enjoy the Italian cuisine at Ristoranté Brissago, noting that the outside fire pits are a nice touch. However, some guests mention that dining at the resort's five restaurants can get expensive, while others warn future visitors of the $20 per night resort fee that's tacked on to your bill.

    The Osthoff Resort
    Elkhart Lake, WI
    #3 in Best Resorts in Wisconsin
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 749 reviewsTripAdvisor (749)
    Free Parking
    Overlooking little Elkhart Lake in eastern Wisconsin — about 60 miles north of Milwaukee — The Osthoff Resort is described by previous guests as a great choice for couples and families looking for an elegant getaway. Guests say the are well appointed and homey thanks to in-room fireplaces, kitchenettes and separate living areas. The rooms also boast private balconies; visitors recommend requesting a room with lake views for a more scenic stay. Most guests agree that the crisp clear waters of Elkhart Lake make for some great swimming in the summer, and those looking to kick back and relax can spend an afternoon lounging in one of the resort's two whirlpools. Beyond that, lessons in French cuisine at L'ecole de la Maison cooking school are a popular draw. But those who prefer not to cook for themselves can enjoy fresh seafood at Lola's on the Lake. Recent guests do say beware that parking can be difficult to find if there's a special event going on at the resort.

    It's easy to see how Canoe Bay earned its reputation as one of the most romantic hotels in the world: This Relais & Châteaux property in Chetek, Wisconsin, caters specifically to couples. You can pick from several different lodging options – from standard rooms to spacious villas and private cottages – which sprawl across the 300-acre wooded estate. All accommodations feature beautiful views, as well as stone fireplaces, furnished decks and whirlpools big enough for two. As for activities, there's canoeing, fishing and boating on the lake, as well as hiking trails and horse-drawn carriage rides. And when you need to wind down, book an in-room massage or cozy up with a good book in the library. Meanwhile, the Dining Room asks that you don smart casual attire for a romantic gourmet meal. Although the room rates here might make you cringe, recent visitors said the property's elegant atmosphere, friendly staff members and romantic setting make it worth it. What's more, loyal Relais & Châteaux guests can take advantage of perks through the Club 5C rewards program.

    The Four Seasons Island Resort
    Pembine, WI
    TripAdvisor Traveler Rating 4.5 based on 356 reviewsTripAdvisor (356)
    Free Breakfast
    Free Parking
    Despite what its name may suggest, this hotel is not associated with the Four Seasons brand. Located on Miscauno Island in northeastern Wisconsin and surrounded by the Menominee River, the Four Seasons Island Resort is known for the abundance of outdoor activities amid the wilderness in which it is set. Guests can work up a sweat golfing, hiking, kayaking or canoeing, then retreat to cozy rooms complete with beds outfitted in down comforters. Additional in-room amenities include free Wi-Fi access and minifridges, plus all accommodations are equipped with balconies. The hotel is also home to an arcade, a pool and whirlpool, and a salon and spa. As far as dining is concerned, hungry patrons should head to the Four Seasons Ristorante or Boundary Waters Sports Bar & Grill for some grub. Past visitors were complimentary of the food and attentive service at both eateries, but noted that menu items (and room rates here) are on the pricey side. However, guests can take advantage of the complimentary daily continental breakfast to offset costs. Note: This hotel is now a seasonal property, open from May through October.
